During my studies I discovered this book by accident, and ever since it became part of my architecture bibles!

It provides dimensions for almost everything that is ascosiated with building industry, as well as human proportions and minimum - maximum dimensions that come in handy when dealing with furniture design. It may lack a couple of dimensioning sets, but then again this is not an issue, because simply enough you can get anything you need by just combining dimensions from each section. (And I am sure with every newer edition, new material will be added.)

I cannot think of any other reference book that would be as needed and helpful.

Having Neufert's Architect's Data is a must on every architect's and student of architecture bookshelve. It provides all the required dimensions of most things one commonly (and not so commonly) meets in life. This edition is a much-needed update of the older version which was in itself a very useful edition. The editors have done a very good job in not repeating information which appeared in the previous version, but included much new material. A section on outdoor lighting with the aim of minimising glare and light pollution from outdoor lighting fixtures would have been much appropriate these days.
Dimensions and planning data for many building types are given, yet astronomical observatories and/or planetaria are again omitted...
All in all, this is a very useful publication and should be the first purchase of any architecture student.

This book was my bible throughout University and beyond. I used it for everything - but the thermal properties of various materials was a particularly useful part. However I got rid of my old edition and, swayed by all my fellow students, got the Metric Handbook and was very disappointed with it. Ive been meaning to get another one of these for years now soon I will. Then the Metric Handbook will be going in the bin.

This book is such a must or need have for everyone in the building industry. All references you need for a price that's very sweet for priceless information. And thank you for not translating this into feet and inches. This is metric info as it should be in Europe! With all drawings it's also a guide for multi discipline and multi language situations. Now let's wait for a digital edition you can fit into AutoCad or Revit or just as a helpfile reference while working out plans or designing them!
